U.S. researchers looked at about 2,000 colon cancer patients and found that smokers were 23% more likely to die or have cancer recurrence three years after having a portion of their colon removed compared with nonsmoking. The effect of smoking on cancer outcomes was more pronounced among patients who were smoking at the time of diagnosis, according to the study in the Journal of Clinical Oncology.
